O’Neal Manufacturing Services kicked off its 25th year of operation in Monterrey, Mexico with a visit from its Birmingham, Alabama corporate leadership. Established on December 15th, 1998, OMS Monterrey is a custom fabrication powerhouse for North American-based original equipment manufacturers.
A supplier to major OEMs, the Monterrey team supports industries from Class A trucks and material handling equipment, to railroad, mining, construction, and industrial equipment. At 240,000 square feet, OMS Monterrey offers the latest in precision metal cutting, forming, large-format machining, blasting, painting, and an extensive manual welding capacity.
“December 15th will mark 25 years that O’Neal has been operating in Mexico,” remarked Kent Brown, President of O’Neal Manufacturing Services. “With a team of 600 employees, you have never been bigger or better.”
The Monterrey plant is one of ten OMS facilities that provide repetitive parts production, engineering, and supply chain collaboration for OEMs seeking a partner to support their manufacturing volume. Other OMS plants are located in Alabama, Iowa, Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Texas. Together, they employ a combined total of nearly 1,500 team members.
OMS is a member of the O’Neal Industries family of companies, which oversees more than 70 specialized facilities throughout North America, Europe, and Asia, all engaged in the metals industry.
“We are one family in many countries,” added Craft O’Neal, Chairman and CEO of O’Neal Industries. “Thank you for being an important part of the O’Neal legacy.”
